glad to see that Eugenio Derbez is doing what he loves to do makes us laugh
Marino...is equally at home directing the broader physical comedy and sweeter bonding sequences between Maximo and Hugo, even as the overlong film's two distinct personalities never manage to coalesce into a self-contained whole.
Derbez brings warmth and intermittent goofy humor to this too-broad and uneven comedy.
Starting off as a strained farce before segueing into a sappy family film, How To Be A Latin Lover has its likeable, goofy moments, although it is consistently undercut by a main character who is very difficult to love.

Did You Know?
- 22 year old Maximo is played by Eugenio Derbez's real son.
- The opening scene shows a picture of a young Maximo and his family standing together in front of a wall. The picture is stuck to the dashboard of Maximo's father's truck. By the "bouncing" shown in the shot,the truck is obviously suppose to be moving. The next scene shows the father and his truck driving down a road to substantiate that fact. However, when you look at the instruments, there are no amps being drawn, and the coolant temperature gauge is reading down below the lowest end of the cold range, indicating that the truck is not running, as hasn't been.
- Maximo: Peggy dumped me... I have no home, no money, no helicopter...
